There are no entries on the mighty Google. If you are clear why bother about it and from where did you hear of it?

click here is a better link. The threat is low...how do you know that you have it as an up to date AV will stop it?

Trend sent an email detailing the fact that this "worm" (for worm read hoax)was transmitted by email and detailed the wording of the email with which it "arrived". This information was misread as instructions for identifying the "worm". Hence the original post.

I.E. there was no worm. Norton AV, AVG and Trend Housecall failed to find anything.

The thing that puzzles me is why Trend sent an email today refering to a hoax that was first identified in April 2002, according to Symantic via Google.

How do I know the background? don't ask.

Thanks for the links

Bob
